    So I haven't written anything in like two weeks

    and I still don't know how I feel about it. It's like I feel okay but at the same time I don't know what to do. Imagine you had a stuffed animal you would always hug, like every day, and now it's gone. That's kinda what it feels like. I don't know. I think I need a new hobby...

    I feel responsible for everyone's pain.

    I try to help people but I can't. I don't know what I should do. I must be a bad person. I always end up venting to the people I'm trying to help, and that just makes it worse. I haven't done anything right. I don't want to go to hell. I want to pay for my sins while I'm alive...
